So, as some of you know, I caved to Lisa's nagging early last month and for the first time in a decade went to a doctor for a physical.
He told me exactly what I expected: That I am healthy, but fat. I need to diet. In his words, exercise will do almost nothing for me; I just need to cut calories, especially from carbs. I am not supposed to eat anything white. Unfortunately, I'm not supposed to eat saturated fat, either. Or, as it turns out, nor am I to indulge in much sugar.
So in the past month, I've made the switch to diet soda, cut way down on bread, cut out most desserts (except for Weight Watchers popsicles, which are surprisingly low in everything, dried berries, and nuts).
Here is the problem: I am a remarkably smart guy. So it didn't take long for me to start finding clever ways to sidestep my healthy eating guidelines. This has gotten worse as I've gotten hungrier.
I need your help. I need suggestions for snack-type food that I can munch on that (in order of preference) is low-carb, easy-to-make, warm, and filling. Filling is the most important part.
Give me your tips. Help me get not-fat!
